Thomas Jefferson head coach Nate Kreifels speaks with his team between the first and second quarters on Thursday, Feb. 6, 2020.

After falling behind 17-10 after the first quarter, Thomas Jefferson outscored Red Oak 73-30 over the final three quarters to post a convincing 83-47 nonconference victory.

Q Owens led the way for T.J. with 26 points, Reese Schlotfeld finished with 12 and Austin Schubert and Amer Ibar each added 10.

“After a change defensively to start the second quarter, we were able to find our groove and played much better on both ends of the floor the rest of the game,” T.J. coach Nate Kreifels said. “We knew coming in Red Oak would play hard and make us earn everything.

“We were able to string together stops which led to run outs and easy baskets on the other end.”

“There were a lot of things that we had to battle through,” Treynor head coach Scott Rucker said. “From the kids that are hurt right now to foul trouble from one of our better players and some pretty poor free throw shooting; but really proud of our kids to continue to keep battling and find a way to get the win.”
